A newly published OIG report reviewed a sample of claims for New Jersey Medicaid beneficiaries receiving home health services during 2007-2008 and found the State’s qualification requirements to be unsatisfactory. The OIG found that New Jersey’s qualification requirements for home health agencies did not ensure the appropriate quality of care had been provided.
Issues around health screening requirements that were not met and requirements for supervision and education that were not met topped the list of issues.
